Unakite - (metamorphic rock)
"Unakite is a metamorphic rock composed primarily of pink. red, and orange feldspar, gray quartz and dark green epidote. Other minerals which may occur in minor amounts include apatite, biotite, magnetite, pumpellyite and zircon.
The unofficial state rock of Virginia. I was told it was proposed twice back in the 60's but never adopted.
